Central Reformed Church is one of the 970 congregations that make up the Reformed Church in America (RCA), the oldest Protestant denomination in North America.
Our church began in 1840 as First Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Grand Rapids. In 1918, First Reformed Church and Second Reformed Church of Grand Rapids merged to become Central Reformed Church. After our church building burned in 1953, Central built on our current site on the corner of College and Fulton. In June of 2008, we finished our new atrium addition and code upgrades to our 1953 Colonial Revival building.
We are known for our commitment to excellence in classical worship and our liberating theology that celebrates the great diversity of thought across the Reformed spectrum. With our emphasis on lifelong learning, Central offers a wealth of educational experiences for all ages.
If you’re within driving distance, please feel free to visit Central. Our Sunday worship begins at 9:30 AM. We hope to see you soon!
